Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Saint Stephen began as an iron building in 1867. A district was assigned in 1876 from the parish of Christ Church. A permanent building was constructed between 1875 and 1880. The building was repaired in 1951 and 1953 and modernised in 1966, but was declared unsafe and closed in 1978-79. Services were held in the hall until a new church building was opened in 1987 in Saint Stephen's Road.
